Just Cause 3 Not Happening In 2012

Rumours circulating from Xbox World magazine that Just Cause 3 could be releasing next year have been quashed by the series’ developer.

In the rumour section of the mag’s latest issue it states:

“Our spies say devs Avalanche are hard at work as we speak, and that it’s set for release next year.”

However, those rumours have seemingly been dispelled by Avalanche studio head Christofer Sundburg in an interview with Eurogamer:

“It’s just a rumour and we’re not releasing any game in 2012.”

Sundburg had previously stated that the studio is keen on making a follow up to the 2010 chart topper so a possible sequel wouldn’t have come as shock to many.

Let’s hope that one day Avalanche will get back to the series and program entirely new ways to stand on moving aeroplanes and tumble down cliffs comically, but sadly it ain’t happening yet.

  1. This is potentially good news to me as it means i may actually get around to finishing the second one before the third is out! :D

    Unfortunately not the same scenario with Uncharted…

    • You haven’t completed Uncharted 2 yet?

      • Nope. :(

        I know it’s good, i just don’t have anything urging me to go back to it for some reason. I know – I can’t work it out myself.

        The only thing that i can think of that would have some effect on it is the neverending pile of newer games (which i stupidly keep adding to).

        Other than that, perhaps i just didn’t enjoy it as much as i was supposed to? Dunno.

  2. Shame. Even after getting the Plat it’s one of my favourite games to pick up and cause chaos in.

  3. Not usually the type of game I like but really enjoyed Just Cause 2.
    I will definitely be getting the next in the series, whenever it’s released.

  4. I love Just Cause 2, I picked it up after my brother kept calling me into his bedroom to show me something funny he was doing on it. I’ve had a lot of fun playing it, and a 3rd instalment would be great, shame it’s all just rumour for the time being.

  5. Wow, you made the joke.

    • If there’s a pun I can think of, I will always write it =p

  6. Boo! Hiss! I hope this means it’s going to be extremely good once it comes out in early january 2013

    • Haha hold onto that faint glimmer of hope, and I’ll join you!

  7. This has made me sad. I have been desperate for a sequel. Just Cause 2 to date is still one of the funnest games I’ve played on the PS3 (and any other console probably).

  8. It’ll give them some extra time to write an extra crappy script.

  9. loved just cause 2, me and my other half were just speaking about how good it would be if u could go on-line with it. Hopefully a third would have this feature :)

  10. Anyway new game to me is better off next gen now (spoit by teh computaur)… Would love to see Just Cause with online CO-OP but I just feel that consoles would limit that…
